Welcome to Octagon Medical Centre

Octagon Medical Centre - We are located on the first floor of the Lever Chambers Centre for Health, in Bolton. All the doctors and nurses take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centered healthcare.  We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal, postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.

We are a long established practice within Bolton with a history going back to the days before the inception of the NHS.  We have a mixture of long-term partners and newly joined partners. Which we feel has helped the practice have a fresh feel and build up good relationships with our patients. We are a training facility and currently take medical students from Manchester University

Our mission is to provide our patients with high quality, accessible care in a safe, responsive and courteous manner.
